We might also see new hardware and consumer products. It has been two years since the M1 chip was announced, and this would be the ideal event to reveal the first details about its successor, the M2—as well as any Macs that might include it. Leaks have suggested that it includes a redesigned MacBook Air, but that might not be all. It’s also possible (though by no means certain) that Apple will give us the first public glimpse of its mixed-reality ambitions beyond the iPhone and iPad.
CUPERTINO (California) — This Monday, June 6, at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. EDT), Apple will deliver the keynote address at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. New announcements concerning iOS, macOS, and much more will be made during the streaming/in-person hybrid event, and we’ll be liveblogging all of them right here. If you haven’t been following the rumour mill carefully up to this point, we recently released a list of forecasts and expectations for the event, so you can get caught up there. We’ll almost certainly see substantial new versions of every Apple operating system, as well as a slew of announcements that will be of interest to Apple platform developers.
